The Patriots have signed RB LeGarrette Blount to a two year deal. Blount was released by the Steelers on Tuesday after leaving the Titans game early. Boston Globe reporter Ben Volin confirmed the news on Twitter this morning.
Confirmed that #Patriots are signing LeGarrette Blount. It’s a 2-year deal worth the minimum plus incentives

Blount was with the Patriots during the 2013 season, and they were reportedly interested in the free agent running back during the off season, but with the depth on their roster, they weren’t interested enough to get into a bidding war with other teams.
The contract terms aren’t immediately available, but it’s a 2 year deal with a 2014 base salary for the veteran minimum. So, the Pats will essentially be getting him for $257,647 to play out the rest of the year. The deal will be incentive laden according to a league source.
